Can anyone recommend the best model of the above in 20mm? I am planning to add a couple to my 1944 German infantry

If you are into plastics, the Pegasus kit might be worth checking out (comes with two crews of four, first crew with regular uniforms and second with smocks):


HäT makes a simpler plastic version (comes with a crew of four wearing smocks):


Zvezda also made their version in plastic (comes with a crew of two):

Excellent. Thanks very much. Would a Protze be a suitable towing vehicle?

In case of infantry regiments, the usual towing vehicle would rather be a limber drawn by two horses.

In case of motorised formations, a light truck (capable of transporting the crew of six) would be a typical towing vehicle.

I have the Valiant one in 1/72 – very nice little gun

Love the references. Thanks, chaps. Did not know of Valiant at all.

RAFM in metal.

I use and recommend Shell Hole Scenics for the IG, they have the spoked wagon wheel type and the pressed metal wheel. A Krupp Boxer, Type 69 is an ideal tow unit for 39-41 as well as the SdKfz 10, in use all war. The Krupp Boxer from First to Fight and the SdKfz 10 from Mk 72 or Ceasar.

As for motorised transport, I managed to find this pre-war / early war TOE for a motorcycle reconnaissance battalion:

Which lists Kfz.69 light truck (Krupp Protze) as the towing vehicle for 7.5 cm infantry guns and 3.7 cm anti-tank guns.

I am not sure how many Krupp Protze there were left in service in 1944, considering that their production ended in 1941.

I use the old Skytrex/Hinchcliffe one
